Don't Forget These Great Books for Sale By R.C. Harvey!

Welcome to the webbed and wired edition of Rants & Raves, aristotle. We’ll be doing the same sort of song and dance here as we used to do in print: reviewing the latest comics and cartoon-related books and ranting about trends and abuses and unfathomable foolishnesses. Each installment will stay here for about four weeks, with a new posting (either R&R or Harv’s Hindsight) coming in just about every other week or so. If you don’t have the time to ponder every punctuation mark in this deathless prose and merely want to see what might be there that would interest you, we suggest you scroll down the page looking for the bold-face type that heralds the notables who reside herein this week. So here we go with Opus 369 (and a reprise of Opus 368)—:


Opus 369: Comic Stripping with Rina Piccolo, Editooning with Pulitzer-winning Morin, Gag Cartooning with New Yorker’s Tom Toro, History of Uncle Sam, the State of the Cartooning Industry & the New Surreal Weird at The New Yorker (August 9, 2017).




Opus 368: Comic ConsCthe Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (July 26, 2017).
